Smooth start for Te Nikau
The Te Nikau hospital in Greymouth opening was live streamed.
“I know West Coasters waited a long time, however, hospitals are challenging and complex builds. It is fantastic people are now benefiting from this state-of-the-art facility which has been operating smoothly since it accepted its first patients in July.
“The $121.9 million facility was purpose built for the environment on the Coast and the design is future proofed to support new models of care and integrated services.
“I want to acknowledge all those involved in the project, from the design team, the West Coast DHB, to all the contractors working with Fletcher Construction, the Ministry of Health and the West Coast Partnership Group,” said Jacinda Ardern.
Associate Minister of Health Peeni Henare says Te Nikau Hospital and Health Centre will benefit patients, whānau, visitors and staff for many years to come.
